Looking for Valentine’s Day activity for kids? Host a Valentine’s Day play date and enjoy sweet treats while doing a good deed for the community.
Valentine’s Day isn’t only for romance, and it certainly doesn’t have to be a Hallmark holiday (though it can certainly feel that way), but a chance to share some love with those around you, be it for your neighbor, your best gal pals, or your kids.
This Sweet Treats, Kind Hearts Valentine’s Day activity is a fun day for your kids, with a charitable craft that will bring some joy to your community.
This party is actually from last year but I’m excited to share it with you and the free printables so you can throw your own play date. Read on to get all the details about this collaboration with Legally Crafty and Sprinkles and Confetti.
Get Crafty with Valentine’s Day Projects
My friend, Holly, over at Legally Crafty is a DIY guru and she’s always creating fun and easy ideas to celebrate the season. She came up with these Valentine’s Day crafts that are perfect for little hands to create. You can get all the details on her blog to set up your own craft station.
Project 1: Valentines Cards for the Community
The first project are DIY Valentine’s Day cards to share with children’s hospitals and nursing homes. All you need are some blank cards, stickers, washi tape and markers.
Project 2: Wood Clipboard Photo Frame
Next up is a DIY wood clipboard photo frame, perfect for displaying a sweet snapshot. Holly has all the DIY supplies and steps on her site, or you can buy some pre-made clipboards to decorate.
Valentine’s Day Play Date Party Supplies
Jackie from Sprinkles and Confetti, an online party supply shop, curated the cutest party supples for this Sweet Treats, Kind Hearts play date.
Valentine’s Day Play Party Food
I love this DIY playing card garland, another fun DIY from Legally Crafty.
Keep it simple with some popcorn, cupcakes, and sugar cookies that the kids can decorate. Serve water and lemonade to wash everything down.
